The Michael Weston-fronted House spin-off may have been condemned, but Fox remains keen on expanding the franchise. Network president Kevin Reilly tells me the hit's EPs, David Shore and Katie Jacobs, have a "standing offer" to create another series. "'It could be a direct spin-off or a completely new show," says Reilly. "Ideally, I would love David and Katie to have their own [two-hour block]."
Regarding the duo's first stab at a House offshoot, the one that would've focused on Weston's private detective, Lucas Douglas, Reilly says they kind of stuck their toe in the water and just didn't feel like it worked. The [character] worked [on] House, but [he] didn't really work as [his] own thing.
